Fidea Cycling Team riders, Bart Wellens and World Champion Erwin Vervecken visited Benicàssim, 70km north of Valencia, where their bike sponsor Ridley has its test center at the Intursports Headquarters.

Their visit to Benicàssim was to plan and design a permanent cyclo-cross training track, something which is unheard of in their homeland in Belgium, arguably the worlds number one cyclo-cross area. Already the two riders have been using the facilities at Intursports, running on the latest treadmills and using the swimming pool.

Wellens commented, "A short plane trip away is going to be a facility that when completed will be a great opportunity for us to come and prepare, we´re really looking forward to coming back to Benicàssim to see the completed project."
